DESIGNATION OF REPRESENTATIVE AND AUTHORIZATION
Designation of Representative: I, , as petitioner (or officer thereof) hereby retain and designate Platinum Tax Grievances, herein after referred to as PTG, as my sole agent in any and all proceedings before the Board of Assessment Review and/or Small Claims assessment review of the Supreme Court, and any other proceeding pursuant to New York State Real Property Tax Law for the purpose of reviewing the assessment of my real property as it appears on the most recent assessment roll of any assessing unit for my property. PTG will prepare and file in a timely manner on my behalf the necessary grievance documents and, at PTG’s discretion, file a Small Claims Assessment Review (SCAR) appeal. In addition, PTG is authorized to request and receive any refunds resulting from the lowering of the real property assessment and apply it to their fee; all remaining funds will be immediately reimbursed to me.
Eligibility: I understand that only the following person(s) is eligible under law to receive a property tax refund: 1) a person named in the records of the county clerk as a homeowner; or 2) the homeowner’s agent; or 3) a contract vendee; or 4) the estate of a deceased homeowner. By signing this agreement, I hereby declare that I am one of the aforementioned listed persons and therefore eligible to receive a property tax refund.
Retainer Agreement: I agree to pay PTG as follows:
By signing this authorization, I acknowledge and understand the following:
1) I am not required by law to use a tax reduction service to apply for a reduction in assessment.
2) No fee is due PTG unless my tax assessment is reduced.
3) PTG is not a government agency and is not affiliated with any government agency.
4) PTG will make reasonable efforts to fully communicate the terms of any settlement made in the course of a tax assessment review proceeding, other than a hearing or trial.
5) PTG is authorized to fully negotiate a settlement should an immediate decision about an offer need to be made.
6) Filing a property tax grievance does not guarantee a reduction.
7) I can cancel within three (3) days of signing this agreement, without penalty, by written notice to PTG.
8) If the home is sold prior to finalization of the grievance, the seller is responsible for fees incurred unless the new homeowner assumes responsibility of the grievance by signing an authorization form with PTG.
9) PTG will not give, share, or sell any of my personal or confidential information.
10) This agreement may only be modified in writing signed by all parties. 11) Any part of this authorization agreement that is deemed unlawful does not void the remaining parts of this agreement.
I have fully read, understand, and agree to the terms and conditions of this agreement.
